Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received this book for review from Give Me Books and the author.  I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review.  The opinions I have expressed are my own.  I am posting this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255:  "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising".


From New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones comes a brand new gripping and provocative novel that ties into her bestselling Careless Whispers and Inside Out series. You can enjoy this as a standalone, but fans of Careless Whispers and Inside Out will get an exciting glimpse of who Ella really is and some of the secrets she's been hiding from everyone she knows.

Desperate to pay for law school, Skye tries her hand at auction hunting with her friend Ella, only to find a poker chip and a note leading to an offsite locker. The next thing she knows, Jason “Red Bull” Wise—a famous, millionaire poker player—is at her door, accusing her of blackmail. Innocent, she swears he’s wrong. He rolls the dice and believes her, impulsively inviting her along to Las Vegas. And remarkably, cautious Skye takes a risk, finding herself seduced by this dangerously alluring man, on his private jet, and finally living life to the fullest. But there is more than passion waiting for Skye and Jason in Vegas when blackmail takes a deadly turn.

A note from the author: Please be aware that BEHIND CLOSED DOORS was once released as just 3 chapters on my website and Storage Treasures. I have since fully completed this novel into 21 chapters (plus an epilogue). Readers will get a FULL-LENGTH book and finally learn the rest of Skye and Jason's story! The middle and end to this book have NEVER been published before so please take time to check it out!

My Thoughts:

Skye listens to her friend Ella and buys a storage unit.  Jason Wise has come into her life and brought a mystery with him.  Skye wants to be in the legal profession but I don’t get that she’s got the drive of some of them.  Which I think Jason uses to his advantage.

What I was impressed with is that the author knows how to create a real jerk.  Believe me, you won’t have any trouble spotting him once he makes his appearance.  I already have Las Vegas on my bucket list but this book solidified when I expect to travel.  I wonder if I’ll see these two during my time there?

If you haven’t had a chance to read the Careless Whispers series, you may want to start here first since Ella is the star there.  In this book, she’s a secondary character.  These two women may seem polar opposites but Skye and Ella seem to fit as friends.  Ella has a way of pulling Skye out of her comfort zone and Jason has that same way about him.  But our author also included the perfect man to hate.  He was a page-turner for me.  Whenever he makes an appearance, I so want him to get his comeuppance but he does redeem himself at the end.  One thing that impressed me was that as we get toward the end the author wraps up the mystery and ends with the happy ending.

Behind Closed Doors is loosely tied to the Careless Whispers series
